  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Olympus C-3030Z: (3 megapixel class) Olympus take last years successful C-2020Z and upgrade it. With more pixels, several fixes and the new black case the C-3030Z is a worthy successor. Image quality is excellent, if occasionally marred by chromatic aberrations (don't we love em?).
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, great colours, high resolution, The ability to just point-and-shoot and at the same time quickly switch to manual functions, Plenty of pixels (2048 x 1536), Portability - light, strong, fairly small, Huge range of shutter speed and apertures for manual mode, Lots of manual features including shutter priority, aperture priority and full manual modes, Neat Black Board & White Board modes (quick scanner anyone?), Low AF Lag, Fast processing, litt...
  • Cons: Chromatic Aberrations visible at wide angles (bad), Barrel distortion, Long power on times compared to the competition, Still a little red channel noise in blue skies, Low light / Long exposure noise, Flash still causes redeye, Plastic cover over LCD needs an anti-reflective coating, No exposure read-out on top LCD, Not enough White Balance control, no manual preset white balance, Not really a new camera, no major new features or functionality, Would have been nice to...

Olympus C-3030Z

16 September 2003
  • Excerpt: Annak ellenére, hogy nem jelentettük azonnal, az Olympus is versenyre kelt a többi nagy gyártóval a 3 megapixeles gépek után érdeklődő vásárlók elhódításáért. A cég ebben a kategóriában 2 gépet mutatott be: a C-3030, a C-2020-as utóda, míg a C-3000-es inkább a C-3030-as egyszerűsített változatának tekinthető. Persze ez nem állapítható meg ennyire konkrétan. A C-3030-as rengeteg olyan funkcióval bővült, ami nem volt benne a korábbi gépben.
